Virginia Tech head coach Justin Fuente celebrates the games outcome at the conclusion of the Virginia Tech - University of North Carolina NCAA football game in Blacksburg on Saturday. 

BLACKSBURG — Virginia Tech announced the details of its revised 2020 schedule on Thursday morning.

The ACC moved to a 11 game scheduling model (10 conference games and one non-conference game) for the fall in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Tech’s lone non-conference game this year will be against Liberty. The teams were originally scheduled to play in the season-opener on Sept. 5. The game will now be played at Lane Stadium on Nov. 7.

The Hokies bookend the season against the two ACC opponents that weren’t originally on their schedule. They open the season on Sept. 12 at Lane Stadium against NC State and close out 2020 hosting Clemson on Dec. 5.

The Commonwealth Cup won’t be on Thanksgiving weekend for the first time since 2005. The rivalry game has been moved up to Week 2 with Virginia scheduled to visit Blacksburg on Sept. 19. It will be the first time the game has been played in September since 1987 (Frank Beamer’s first season).
